Stage It!!!

Good Evening my crafty friends.

I am sharing with you today a project for this month's Designers Challenge. The theme this month is: Stage It. We are to create a project using the Stage It Stencils from the Pop It Ups line from Elizabeth Craft Designs and Karen Burniston.

 For my project, I decided to make an altered memory book. the book is a paper mache book from a craft store. (I have recently spotted some at Tuesday Morning as well)

Here is what the book looked like at the the start.

Here is the book in progress. You can see the new Gears stencil using some of the Antique Gold glitter from ECD mixed with some Transparent Texture Paste from Ranger. I have also used some Distress Paint and the Mediallion Stencil, as well as the Chocolate glitter and the Flourish stencil.

Here is the completed cover. I have used gears from the Clock and Gears die and the New Steampunk Charms. The photo frame is from the Hanging Charm Pull Card Die.  I have also incorporated the a foil diecut from the Chicken Wire Die and some chains from the ECD Chains die set.


Here is a closer look at the front of the cover.


I decided to also alter the spine of the book. I created some faux leather from chipboard and used the Trendy Tiles embossing folder to complete the look.

Supplies Used:
